2008 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage "Unfiltered" Port Top Pick!
2008 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage "Unfiltered" Port

93 points Decanter: "Open, opulent wild mint and berry fruit nose. Rich, succulent summer fruit on the palate: plums and cherries, backed by firm, stony tannins with a touch of black pepper. Bottled with a stopper cork. For drinking now and over the next two years. Drink 2014-2017." (12/2014)93 points Wine Spectator: "Focused and pure-tasting, with concentrated flavors of red plum, crushed raspberry and violet that are broad, rich and plush.

Ramos Pinto White Port

White port is one of the world's most civilized aperitifs, and we here at K&L think that the Ramos Pinto is one of the best. Made from Malvasia Fina and Codega grapes (mostly grown on the Ramos Pinto estate) that are picked quite ripe, this wine is then aged for three years in traditional port barrels called "pipes." Full-bodied and exotic, it is incomparable on the rocks with an orange twist. Since it has had extended barrel age and is fortified, it is no problem to have keep it in the refrigerator for a month after opening it, but I doubt it will last ... Read More »

2012 Taylor Fladgate "Vargella Single Quinta" Vintage Port

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Quinta de Vargellas Port, a typical Douro blend, was aged in large French oak vats for 24 months and bottled in 2014. It comes in at 103 grams per liter of residual sugar. This opens steely and gripping, with fine acidity, firmness on the finish and enough concentration in this lighter-styled vintage. The best of the trio submitted by Taylor Fladgate this issue, it does everything well and mostly exceeds expectations. It more or less combines a bit of the initial power displayed by the Fonseca and the expressiveness of the Croft, and adds silky ...Read More »

1983 Cockburn Vintage Port (Previously $140)

97 points Wine Spectator: "A big, tough Port for long-term aging. It underlines what people mean when they say a great young vintage Port should overpower one's plate with fruit and tannin. Inky color, with perfumed cherry and berry aromas, full-bodied, with tons of tannins, intense cherry and berry flavors and a lingering finish." (1/1989)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house tends to produce quite full-bodied, rich, alcoholic, spirited vintage ports that never have a great deal of complexity or finesse but offer meaty, chocolaty, spicy, full-bodied, alcoholic flavors at the expense of elegance.

The palate is underpinned by very fine tannins, a sensual, svelte texture with wonderful acidity.

The palate is nicely balanced with slightly tarry black fruit. It offers lifted acidity and a spirituous nature without any loss in tension and there is a pleasant kick of volatility towards the refined, harmonious finish.

This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor.

(8/2006)91 points Wine Spectator: "Concentrated flavors of dried pear, apricot, cherry and spice combine into this seamless package. The finish features toffee and orange zest notes, with hints of smoke." (6/2011) Jancis Robinson: "Vigorous quite deep tawny colour with easy rose petal aromas and something rather malty about it. A serious tawny, even if there i ...Read More »

1985 Gould Campbell Vintage Port

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One rarely sees this brand stateside. The 1985 is one of the surprises of the vintage. It has an intense nose of chocolate, berry fruit, and tar. On the palate, the wine is concentrated, powerful, and full-bodied with layers of fruit. It finishes sweeter than some of the other ports with a great deal of tannin." (1/1989) Wine Spectator: "A good, standard '85, quite lean and angular. Deep purple, with very grapy raspberry aromas, full-bodied, with medium tannins, sweet fruit and a slightly short finish. (Web Only—1989)"

1970 Taylor Vintage Port Top Pick!
1970 Taylor Vintage Port

99 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine's dark garnet color with minimal bricking suggests a relatively youthful wine and this certainly could age longer, although it's also delicious now. Wonderfully complex floral and herbal scents easily move into deep, rich flavors of chocolate and cherries, sprinkled with a healthy dose of Douro minerality and spice. Drink or hold." (2/2007)98 points Wine Spectator: "Clearly lives up to Taylor's superb reputation. Deep ruby, with intense violet and chocolate aromas, full-bodied, with gorgeous fruit flavors, full but well-integrated tannins and an extremely long finish. Ama ...Read More »

1994 Warre's Vintage Port

95 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 1997* A great surprise for the vintage. Displays fabulous concentration and complex character with it's layers of very sweet fruit, chocolate and cherry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. Long finish with plenty of grip. Beautiful wine." (4/1997)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-colored wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impre ...Read More »

91 points Wine Spectator: "Has great elegance and harmony, and should continue to improve for many years. Medium ruby-red, with very fresh plum aromas, medium-bodied, with very delicate fresh fruit flavors, lively acidity and a delicate finish." (1/1989) Jancis Robinson: "Rich and raisiny. Light nose. More than a hint of those cough sweets - Fisherman’s Friend – about it. Fully mature. 19/20 points." (7/2007) K&L Notes: It's a fine time to discover the joys of vintage port, like this 50-year-old Croft from a great year, and at a great price considering all its years spent in the cellar.

1963 Dow's Vintage Port (Previously $350) Top Pick!
1963 Dow's Vintage Port (Previously $350)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Perfectly mature, this Port's tannins have softened over the past 40-plus years, leaving it lushly textured and displaying rich fig and chocolate flavors. Finishes long, picking up a touch of almond to go with the fig, flavors Symington calls -Dow’s hallmarks.- Drink now-2015, longer if you prefer very mature wines." (3/2008)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale brick colour with fragrant scents of mossy wood, potpourri, cinnamon and dried mulberry plus a whiff of espresso. A mature, well balanced Port comes through in the mouth with high acidity cutting through the lingering dried berry ...Read More »

1970 Fonseca Vintage Port (Previously $290)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Some people may enjoy this wine's rather fat, rich and powerful fruit now, but I still find it too young for drinking. Deeply colored, with smoky mint, tar and fruit aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated fruit flavors and plenty of tannins. (Web-1989)"95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Vintners Company’s 650th anniversary celebration at Vintners Hall, the Fonseca 1970 was the finest bottle I have encountered. The bouquet opens beautifully with heady scents of clove, ginger, small red cherries, bergamot and allspice, displaying exquisite definition and harmony. The palate fol ...Read More »

Taylor 10 Year Old Tawny Port

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is my opinion that Taylor's tawny ports are the best of their type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length. The Ten Year Old Tawny is a personal favorite, as well as the best bargain among these ports. (RP)" (2/1995)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This very complete aged tawny has all the right nuts and fruit characters that show a Port that still looks back to its fruity origins. The style is ripe, full and sweet, a mellow wine that only hints at the spirit behind it." (12/2014) Jancis Robinson: "1 ...Read More »

1991 Graham's Vintage Port

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham's 1991 Vintage Port gets my nod as the port of the vintage. While keeping in mind that Graham's aims for a sweeter-styled port, there is no doubting the opaque purple/black color, or the explosive nose of black fruits, licorice, spring flowers, and tar. Thick and full-bodied, with a satiny texture and a blockbuster, alcoholic finish, this is a top-notch vintage port. (RP)" (2/1995)93 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely plum and coffee aromas open to a full-bodied palate, with sweet, decadent fruit. Velvety, with a long finish. Lots going on." (5/2005)

Casa de Santa Eufemia 20 Year Old Tawny Port

Produced in tiny quantiities (only 60 cases per year!), from 30 hectares of vines, many of which are extremely old, heirloom varieties, it is no surprise that this 20 year old tawny is our most expensive, but also, arguably, our very best! José Viseu Carvalho coaxes flavors both typical and unique out of his single quinta's exquisite 20 year old tawny. A complex nose of sweet spices and the usual assortment of dried fruits also has an intriguing, celery seed savory side to it.
